Last month my father-in-law asked me to bake a cake for my mother-in-law's birthday dinner. I remembered that she loved key lime pie, but I needed a cake recipe. I turned to Pinterest of course. I found several recipes for key lime pound cake. I wanted something a bit grander though. Then I stumbled upon this key lime cake recipe from Bakerella. The recipe used basic ingredients for the most part and was easy put together.
As usual I made a few changes to the original recipe. I used juice from regular limes (at 25 cents each) rather than key limes. I also added some lime zest to the cake and the frosting. I substituted Greek yogurt for the sour cream only because I had yogurt that needed to be used. I cut the amount of sugar in the cake to 1 cup. I also halved the frosting recipe. It was plenty of frosting for the cake. I cannot imagine trying to put a full frosting recipe on one cake. I added a fresh lime slice to the top.
The cake was delicious and not too sweet. It was very moist. I ended up making the cake again for a church dinner the following weekend. This recipe is a definite keeper!
